Leaving the hospital

He’s home! We had time to chat a bit while we were waiting on discharge arrangements and I reiterated to Jeff just how fortunate and blessed he is to be going home. There were times things could have easily gone the other way. He knows how lucky he is and hates that he can’t make more of each day. His mind is willing, but his body reminds him he has some recovery ahead.

Of course we went straight from the hospital to Cabela’s today. He couldn’t wait to get his hands on the very generous gift from Ira! Getting in and out of the car wore him out, but he says it was so worth it. Anything to see him smile.

We have a wheelchair, a nebulizer, and a walker and will have home health come a few days. He’ll get some physical therapy to work on his strength. And he has time to recover before chemo starts again after December 2nd.

It wasn’t long ago that my hope was dwindling, but I have found new strength and today hope is restored. I know he still has some trying times ahead, but with continued determination we’ll get through it.
